My first post here in the illuminati is a vacuform 1/32nd Airacobra P-400 with lots of scratch-built parts.
Vacs are a bear as they don't come with anything but basic draped styrene shapes. Everything else is scrounged or scratched. Hope you like.

Smokin' hot! :smokin::icon_thumright:
Great work!Any more photos?
That wouldn't happen to be a COMBAT MODELS vac would it?

Yes it is an old combat models vac - with no parts provided except some decals.
The stars were scrounged from other sources and the dogsmouth was hand painted.
Of course as soon as I finished the build an IM kit was released. LOL
Still have to change out the exhausts for the 12 stacks to truly represent a P-400 based on Guadacanal.
But only the very few would notice the exhausts aren't correct.
by the way this was my first vac kit.
